There would be outrage if a TV channel broadcasting in Baltimore reported a fire started by accident and killing a number of Afro-Americans as having been deliberately lit. Still more so if the lie was spread via an English-language channel directly funded by the Kremlin.

Who wants to turn Kyiv into another Donetsk?

While the western media present any talk of Russian involvement in the killing of journalist Oles Buzina and politician Oleh Kalashnikov as the ‘Kyiv version’, like the ‘Kremlin version’ of Boris Nemtsov’s murder, it is by no means only Ukrainian politicians who are expressing concerns which if warranted would have seriously frightening implications. | detail

Russia needs more than just stern words on Nadiya Savchenko
